Tony Jordan set up Red Planet Pictures in 2005 as a uniquely writer led, creatively inspiring, drama house. It was conceived to make popular intelligent drama - the type of shows that cemented Tony's reputation as series creator and show runner.
Red Planet Pictures' recent work includes the hugely popular DEATH IN PARADISE (BBC1) a Caribbean-set murder mystery which is now in it's third series, multi-award winning THE NATIVITY (BBC1) which received critical acclaim and most recently the new BBC 1 series BY ANY MEANS. Upcoming productions include THE PASSING BELLS, NOAH and DICKENSIAN - all for BBC One.
Our first factual commission, HISTORY COLD CASE (in association with SHINE), has had two series on BBC2 and a US version for Nat Geo.
Red Planet is dedicated to the nurturing of new writers and in 2007 launched the RED PLANET PRIZE. Now in our seventh year, the Prize is in partnership with KUDOS and shows our continuing commitment to new writing talent.
Red Planet Pictures manages a diverse development slate, from innovative factual entertainment projects to our core business primetime drama.
